October is here and though Halloween gets the most attention this time of year, most of us recognize that it is also Breast Cancer Awareness month. Though, that is somewhat of a misnomer. I doubt there are many people left who are not aware of breast cancer, at least here in the U.S. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in U.S. women, with approximately 250,000 cases diagnosed each year.* It permeates our culture and there is no doubt that most of you reading this now know someone who has been effected by this horrible disease. I am no exception.
I had a dear co-worker pass away from breast cancer along with other forms of cancer that had riddled her body. It was a devastating process to watch her go from vibrant and joyful young woman, to the wasted and decimated skeleton she became at the end. I know that is a harsh description, but it is truthful. That's what this disease does.
